Drew Estate has announced a new size in the Liga Privada H99 blend: Phineas Gage Lancero. This will be a Drew Diplomat Program Event Exclusive Cigar. The new vitola is a Lancero that measures 7 x 40 and is named Phineas Gage.
The Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo Phineas Gage Lancero will be an event-only cigar available exclusively to all qualifying Drew Diplomat Retail Program partners. The cigar’s name comes from the improbable story of Phineas Gage, a railroad foreman, who in 1848, survived a grievous accident when an iron rod was driven completely through his head, forever changing his personality. Also known as “The American Crowbar Case,” Gage’s story became a medical curiosity and spearheaded psychological and neurological studies into how the brain affects personality development.
The blend for the Phineas Gage Lancero is the same as the rest of the Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo line. It uses a hybrid wrapper that’s derived from Stalk- Cut Habano and Connecticut Corojo seed, grown exclusively for Drew Estate in the Connecticut River Valley. The binder is Mexican San Andres Otapan Negro Último Corte binder and it uses Honduran, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Green River One Sucker filler tobaccos.
The Liga Privada H99 Phineas Gage Lancero hits you like a spike right through your brainbox and you’ll never be the same.
